“My family and I are so excited about this opportunity. We are looking forward to doing big things with the West Alabama men’s basketball program,” Downey said. “When we visited the campus, we were so impressed by the enthusiasm and the hospitality. We felt the hunger to build a successful basketball program both on and off the floor.
The school will not have a news conference to make the announcement. However, the university plans to hold a reception for Downey at a later date, Williamson said.”
